Yes compiling these files is quite expensive and I have found that it
can run into resource limitations.  A case study - I was recently
trying to install guile-2.0.5 on a shared hosting account.  The build
process would always halt during compilation of eval.go due to limits
placed on memory use.  The solution I eventually adopted was to steal
an already-compiled eval.go file for that architecture from a Debian
package of guile, drop that into the build tree, and restart the
building process - and it resulted in a working guile.

So while it is possible that the build issues you are seeing are due
to some kind of deadlock as others have suggested, I would not rule
out that this is a problem with some sort of resource limit and that
once you get guile compiled on your system it will function correctly
for less-demanding applications.
